This building is based on the former Southern Railway Belvedere Electrical Substation, built in 1926. These buildings were widespread across South London and southern Home Counties supplying the 3rd rail power. Many are extant today.
Nicknamed ‘Cathedrals' because of their massive height and large windows. By the 1960s the windows in the lower alcoves were bricked in and today most survivors have the arched windows bricked in as well. Both variants, bricked-in windows or arched faux glass windows, are available together with optional cable conduits. Cable conduits were installed at the prototype in about 2014.
Only the faux glass windows variant includes decorated internal walls.
